first youll need money, if the guy thats running away, has a job an has abit of money well then hide him at your house an make him pay for the food , if he has a fair bit of money then he could just go to a motel , or some shit like that but those cost abit , also go to the next town/suburb if he’s goin to a mo/hotel

If he has nowhere to go, a good thing to do would be to sleep during the day somewhere hidden- much safer than during the night. And get up at night instead, when you have to be alert.

im not seeing any art to running away. just grab any available cash and go stay anywhere 4 a few days. But if u want to get these parents back leave a suicide note. if that doesnt make them worry then damb they are crappy parents

I always keep a bag packed with a few important things like rope solar blankets a sterno grill with fuel (mine folds up about the sive and thickness on a MRE. I keep MRE as well, and some non perishable food like rice or oatmeal with a mess kit and a knife. I live near the woods so this is practacle to my enviroment. the contents would be different depending on the enviroment you plan on hideing in. I have a hand held tree saw in mine, something you wouldn’t need if you lived in the city. everyone should have one of these made up just in case, no matter who you are. It makes running away much easier

That suicide note was a great touch. Just the week before use ur rents credit cards to order eerything u’ll need to survive. I love MREs, get a tent,some warm clothing, blankets, a stove, some fuel, some survial books, and a bus ticket to move u about 1000 miles away. hmmmmmm…this almost sounds fun….if u lik survival crap like i do. Also get an air rifle to hold off the cops if they find u!!
ah…. I M Hell

I think Bill Cosby best decribed running away something like this:
1. Bend your knees slightly.
2. Place one foot in front of the other repeating this motion.
3. Continue this movement at an increasing pace in the opposite direction.
I don’t promote running away. If you are underaged, (which would make sense if you are running away) you can’t get a real job. You will ALWAYS be running. Watch the movie The Outsiders. It’s a pretty good movie, but it takes a bit to get in to. Think things through a little bit. If running away is going to be something just to be used for “teaching them a lesson”, then you are planning to go back. Don’t you think you will get your ass pounded for that?

I ran away when I was 15 years old. I stayed with a friend or a friend. I lived in his closet for 10 days because his parents couldn’t know I was there. I came out during the day while they were at work. I felt like Anne Frank. I took my TV, Clarinet, Sterio and Nintendo (all which my horribly neglectful parents bought me) and pawned them all. I used the money to buy a sheet of acid – and started selling-a-way at stupid dance clubs. Guys let me stay with them since I had a little money to feed myself from selling acid – and I would sometimes give them some head. Too bad your friend is a guy… giving head or putting out is a great way to find a place to stay a night or 2. I don’t think it works as good for guys though… THEn my “runaway teen” picture started popping up around town, and I just called my parents one day. I went home then. I was never so happy to go home. They were really nice to me when I came back. They even let me stay out of school for a few weeks and bought me new clothes… and hooked me up with a pretty cool therapist.

I am an expert at running away. In fact I am doing that
right know. I found my mom’s bank card left on the table one night. Took a grand, my best clothes and left.
When you run away you must fallow rules.
1.) leave note saying your going to somewhere believable but far.
2.)go in oppositte dirrection.
3.)do not leave your phone or address book behind.
4.)don’t go in the area your parents know people like their friends, or family.
5.)pawn anything of your parents that is worth value
within reason. NO WEDDING RINGS. pawn cds, stereo or something.(CARS CAN BE TRACED)
6.)don’t tell anyone where you are but closest friends.
but even then be careful.
7.)look for work as soon as possible.
8.)If their is nothing on your plate. STEAL. dont starve.
9.)look after yourself before others.

hey dont run away cause from formal experiance no madder how bad it is atleasta you have a roof over your head and if it is that bad just take it till your 18 then fuckin go for wha tyou want but i would have a roof rather than an over pass……………..
— Posted by bigboom on 9:40 pm on Mar. 8, 2002
forgot all bout this topic,hey dumb fuck sometimes a overpass is better than your house but i’m lucky all i gotta do is disapear 4 two days come back spend the rest of the time in my clube hous from when i was younger that way i score food,clean clothes or wash’em and get free smokes and money
— Posted by preditor on 10:59 pm on Mar. 8, 2002
yeah, sometimes I’d prefer a random overpass to my roof, but I wouldn’t want to stay under one for long. If your stepdad beats you with a bat there is a numder you can call to get his ass thrown in jail, then he can get raped by buba

Good advice preditor, & to anybody concerned bubba

— Posted by loscgk83 on 9:45 pm on Mar. 21, 2002
fuck all that if he runs a way his on his own ,NO HELP IS TO BE LENT TO HIM.i believe u run to get away from help, live, parents,etc. u run to be away from all that to be alone.it all depends if u run to get away from some one but stop and stay at a freind then ur no run away,UR A FUCKIN SLEEP OVER BUD WITH NO PREMISSION TO SLEEP OVER,that all u are.
runnin aways one thing but stayin at a freinds and scarin the shit out of ur parent is another.ur freind need to pick one of the two, a true run away or a fuckin sleep over buddy

When i ran away all i took with me was $140 in 20 dollar bills, 2 changes of clothes, boots, a knife, and my brothers pistol, can never be too cautious, but then again i live in the middle of nowhere otherwise known as the backwoods of north carolina, so i used the pistol to take down small game like rabbit and squirrel

Despite los’s fucked up spelling, I agree with him.
Are you running away, or are you walking over to your friends house to stay for a few days till you scramble home for some better food?
Trully ‘running away’ would have to entail leaving alot more behind than your parents. They are after all, the ones that provide you with clothing, shelter, food, and/or money. So trully running away would mean that you have to learn how to get all those things yourself. NOw there are two ways you can do it. One is living in the streets, and the othe is living in the woods.
I’ve never lived as a homeless person in the streets, but I had a friend who was for TWO years. That’s a hell of a long time to be in the streets as a kid. He said it was one of the two best years of his life. First of all, he wasnt in some crackhead neighborhood of south Bronx (there youd just get fucked up) but he was in a smaller city in California. He would go to 24 hour laundromats and climb way up on top of the big machines near the cieling to sleep. It was warm and safe for the most part. If he couldnt get in to a place like that, he would usually sleep during the day and stay awake at night, that way he slept when it was warm, and also he would sleep in a very public place like a park, so that he wouldnt get jacked up by somebody.
Shelter wasn a big problem because this was after all, southern CA, and there was no snow or much rain. He told me that there were always ways to get food without scrounging in the garbage like an addict.
He would watch out for gatherings in public buildings or parks where there were buffet lines for the attendees and just slip in. Noone would ever say anything even if they knew he wasnt supposed to be there. You just gotta make sure you dont look like a drunk, keep you self as clean as possible at all times, that way people see you as a person more like them, and not some dirty faced man in the corner. People are more likely to give money to someone if they see that person looks them in the eye, and doesnt look like a drunk or an addict.
You can always raise a few bucks by taking an old coffee can, covering it with paper and writing some bullshit charity cause on it. Then go and stand in the middle of traffic in parking lots and crap.
So like I said, I’ve never lived on the streets, but I have lived in the woods with nothing but my clothes. Anything is possible.
One of the books I read when I was a kid that motivated me to do it was called Tracker. Its good reading for that kind of thing. I remember another old book called My Side of the Mountain. Now that is another story. All of the stuff he does in that book is theoreticly possible, but he’d never be able to spend his time that way in real life, and most of it is bullshit.
Just get a good book on what kind of plants to eat, and NEVER eat anything you cannot identify %100.
One time I thought I identified this mushroom as a white morel, but it was instead a liberty cap. I got high just holding it in my hands. And there is a plant that looks like celery root, but instead its poisinous. So anyways… just decide what you want to do and get out there.
Oh yea, and a handgun doesnt hurt either. Good for mountain lion or street thug.

CREEPERS PRACTICAL HANDBOOK TO RUNNYING AWAY FROM HOME
1. You wil need: Clothes – pleanty of keep warm stuff. A waterproof coat. A sleeping bag. Money your fathers bank card and pin number.
2. Your wits, You’ll need’em
3. Think about, what are your mum and dad going to do? Try to get you back, of course. It’ll be police, It’ll be Oh my god my little boy has been abducted. It’ll be Maybe some pervert is at him right now. Maybe he’s lyeing murdered in a binliner THIS VERY SECOND.
It never occurs to them that maybe little Lucinda got so fed up with mumsy and dadsy that she acualy left of her own accord. So..If you dont want every pigger on your trail, tell your mom and dad Exactly what your doing.
4. This is where the pensil and paper comes in. You write them a note explaining that your going away and they can expect to see very little of you in the near future. wish them luck, no hard fellings, and that you hop they under stand. Alternitavly you could write one asking them how they can live with them selves alfter they have made your life a liveing hell, ect. But beware, this will undermine your credibility.
5. book your coach ticket useing your fathers visa card.
6. Take the money and run.

You can find a camp in the middle of nowhere and stay there for weeks at a time, and then move on to the next. I did that, and had my brother send me money for food. when my brother got sick of sending me money, i just used the camps i was staying at as a drop sites for carding, and moved on to the next area. I did that for a couple months until my parnets split up and i could go live with my mom. Somehow i ended up living with my brother anyway. Damn parents can’t stop fighting. Oh yeah, you should card your parent’s credit card for all it’s worth before you leave.
